Canvas Connections

Interactive Media Through Arc

Wednesday, July 18, 2018

Noon PT / 3:00 p.m. ET

Meeting virtually via BlueJeans


Instructure says its media hosting platform, Arc, is "the end of passive video." A university in Idaho that has been using Arc almost since its debut in late 2016 can attest that the slogan is true.


With Arc, faculty and students alike can record from their webcam or create a screen capture. The resulting video files will automatically import into Canvas for sharing with others. Screencasts also have a built-in editing suite that appears once the video is complete. With both types of recordings, owners can enable, edit, and publish automatic captions.


No webcam? No problem. Just enter the URL for a YouTube video.


Here's where Arc provides real value: students may enter comments and questions at specific points of the videos, and faculty can see analytics to learn who has watched the videos, and for how long.


On July 18, Jesse Buchholz of Northwest Nazarene University will demonstrate Arc's many features. Join us for an informative session about a solution that can bring true interactivity to your online (or face-to-face) courses.
